Zeusmos – The Installous Alternative

Zeus

One of the draws of jailbreaking was always the ability to try apps before you buy them. After all, if you’re going to spend $10 on something, you want to be sure you’re getting your money’s worth. Well, as you may or may not know, Installous was shut down some time ago. However, that does not mean the end of the “try before you buy” movement. Let me introduce you to Zeusmos.

Zeusmos is a great deal like Installous in that it lets you download and install apps so that you can try them. Getting Zeusmos is just as easy as getting nearly any other jailbreak app. Here are the steps:

  1. Open Cydia store and go to Manage—>Sources.
  2. Now tap on ‘Edit’ then add the following repo to Cydia: ihacksrepo.com and then tap on Add Source.
  3. Now search for ‘Zeusmose’ on Cydia and download it..
  4. That’s it, now and after you restart Springboard you should see Zeusmos app available at your iPhone Springboard.

Try iPhone apps before you buy them? Sure… if you’re jailbroken with Installous

DISCLAIMER: Installous should not be used for piracy and this article in no way advocates such acts. Installous should be used as a “try before you buy” system so that you can decide if you like an application before spending money on it. If a Lite version is available, that version should be used rather than Installous.

$0.99 here, $1.99 there… oh, look at that game! Only $4.99!… (15 minutes later)…. Wow! What a waste of money!

Typically, that’s how Apple’s App Store works. Now, let’s talk about what has become a great alternative to hoping your hard-earned money isn’t wasted: Installous. Continue reading
